The Freight of 08It's the last month of the year, so why not look back?
The sixteen tracks on this compilation are probably the ones I listened the most to in 2008. I made a ranking of my ten favourite CDs (to be found on the right side of your screen too) and added some excellent albumtracks to reach the usual number of sixteen. Note, the titles in this tracklisting are in random order, because I can't put one CD above the other, but Brian Culbertson, Jamie Lidell and David Sanborn hardly ever left my CD player...
And off course you don't have to agree with my taste. You can tell me which ones are absolute rubbish to you, and which ones are missing in my list, according to you. I even invite you to do so, and go to the comments.
But if you happen to have the same taste as I do, please go to the poll and vote for your favourites.
Enjoy the music, and have a marvellous holiday season.
